(Bloodroot (Sanguinaria canadensis) - 03) The bloodroot has a solitary leaf and is relatively easy to spot in the early spring. Once we find the flower and locate the bloodroot leaf, we try to look at it once a day until blooming stops. This one does not appear to have had a flower, or it was picked before it matured. Most of the bloodroot leaves we have observed have been about 3 inches across and very close to the ground; however, the literature says that they can grow as tall as 12 inches.

lamb-right lamb-left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
